This had a lot of flavor and it was very easy to cook and make. I used my bamboo steamer and it did take about twice as long to cook. I was having this as a main meal so I made brown rice and mixed them all into a bowl when everything was cooked.

very good and low in fat I just dumped everything into a steamer with the sauce over the top.

Liked this very much. Lots of flavor that doesn't rely on fat/oil or sugar. The cooking technique worked well - just took twice as long as the directions indicate but then I used twice as much foil and made two large packets rather than four smaller ones. Healthy meal that bears repeating.
